This is inspired from the kdrama ‘The Devil Judge’. I fell in love with the ost and wanted to write.

People

People are selfish by nature. You, me, everyone. We say we don’t harm people intentionally. May be we don’t physically. But emotionally, we do much damage than we take credit for. The echoes of the hurt we once received resonates, magnifies and then hits people close to us – people who have nothing to do with our pain or our […]

Poetry and You

I was at the far corner of the room, taking the last sip from my glass of cold beer, when your eyes met mine. And from those eyes, I could read, except for the black veil bride’s ” We don’t belong’, there was nothing in the room we both could relate to. I smile and you smile back and slowly […]

To Room Nineteen – Doris Lessing

In a recent conversation with a male friend he asked, “If you are planning to get married at some point of life, why does it matter if you get married at 22 or 25?”. Well.. I don’t know what changes for a man. But brought up in a patriarchal society, I have always felt many things change for a women. […]

The God Of Small Things – Arundhati Roy

If you ask me what this book is about, I really don’t have a definite answer. Arundhati Roy’s ‘ The God Of Small Things’ is about many things – love, pain, joy, madness, jealousy, hierarchy, human intent and nature. This book is about the fine line between all of this. If you ask me whose story this is, I still […]

A Thousand Splendid Suns – Khaled Hosseini

All through the book , “A Thousand Splendid Suns“, I kept going back to a so- called healthy discussion I had with somebody recently. I shared a post saying “Women suffer more in a war created by men” or something along the line( Context: Taliban taking over Afghanistan) and he was worried or even offended ( can’t account to what […]

Heaven – Mieko Kawakami

I have always been amazed by the way some Asian writers craft their character and storyline. The best part is, it is never just about the stories or people but equally about the character’s emotions, their feelings at a particular moment. The level of detailing is so good that you feel like you are in that person’s head all through […]

Born A Crime – Trevor Noah

To write or share a painful personal memory is hard. But Trevor Noah in his book, Born A Crime, manages to share his coming to age hardships in the most light hearted manner possible. It is informative, inspirational and witty, all at the same time. The book is set in the apartheid, post-apartheid period when it was illegal for a […]

These Days…

When I came home this March with the TCS system, I never thought I will be staying here for this long. Almost 6 months have passed and the weekends on which I couldn’t wait to go home to Amma’s choru and sambhar seems like a distant thing in the past. This is truly a period of realization, a period of […]
